I'm going to make much better use of email. In particular, I want to reach out to the parents of the kids who struggle. Last year I had an ongoing dialogue with about 8 of them. I really kept them in the loop as far as deadlines and how thier sons and daughters were doing in class-- I would shoot off a few emails during my study hall. They were incredibly thankful. I also want to let the kids know they can email me (at my school email of course) if an issue comes up. Not "how do you do the homework?" but an issue of other sorts. Sometimes we forget the things that are going on at home, and the kids feel funny talking about them in front of their peers. Anyway, what's your New Years Resolution??
